My main research interest lies in survey sampling and statistical analysis with missing data. By introducing missing data (or latent variable) framework, we can handle many applied statistical problems as a missing data problem. For example, measurement error models and multi-level models can be treated as special cases of the latent variable modeling. Also, data integration is an emerging application area of missing data analysis. I am now exploring machine learning topics, including classification and random forest prediction.
